Bonus Flour Sax Quilt Shop Row Pattern--Home Sweet Home theme!

Taylor Quinn has it all—at least by millennial standards. A good job, a home in the city, and someone she loves to share life with.

But when her mom dies unexpectedly, she doesn't hesitate to drop everything for her family. With a baby sister still in high school, an elderly grandfather at home, and the family quilt shop to run, she knows where she needs to be.

Belle, Taylor's sister, fears their mom's death is her fault. She thinks her birth mom may just have wanted her back badly enough to kill.

To lay Belle's fear to rest, the Quinn girls search out exactly what happened the night of the accident. But in doing so, Taylor finds herself tangled in a mess of secrets, envy, and small town gossip that threatens to unravel the family she loves.

Ripping out the stitches that hold her family together may be the only way to keep their lives from falling apart.

Assault and Batting is the first book in The Taylor Quinn Quilt Shop Mysteries series. I really enjoyed this book and found it to be very entertaining. The characters are well developed and the storyline is well written and engaging. This story has tragedy, loss, mystery, drama, secrets, and quilting. This is the first book I have read by this author and I am looking forward to more books in this series. I read and reviewed this book with no obligation.

Assault and Batting is the first in the new Taylor Quinn Quilt Shop mystery series by Tess Rothery. While I really liked the story and where it went, it seemed to take a long time to get there. It definitely dragged in places and that's why I didn't give it 5 stars. I really like the main character, Taylor Quinn, who is thrown into a very difficult situation after a tragedy involving her family. She gives up her entire life to move home to take care of her younger sister and grandfather so I loved the loyalty she had for her family and her grandfather is fantastic even while dealing with his own medical problems. I didn't care for the younger sister but she's dealing with a lot so hopefully I'll grow to like her as the series continues. I really believe this series has some great potential so I totally recommend reading it. I definitely think you'll find it worth your time!
